Moderated by Anne Rieselbach

This program is organized by the New York Transit Museum and is co-sponsored by the Architectural League.

The New York Transit Museum’s new exhibition Grand Central Sketchbook highlights the winning drawings of a competition sponsored by the Transit Museum and the Architectural League. These designs, all featured in a limited edition Moleskine sketchbook, evoke a range of narratives, unusual vantage points, and the complexity and dynamism of a working transit hub. The work forms a collective portrait that captures Grand Central Terminal’s historical legacy and current functionality. For more information on the competition and the winning work click here.  This conversation between jurors and winners of the drawing competition will give an in-depth look at the work on view.
